Sonchus oleraceus

This is sowthistle (Sonchus oleraceus), outside of Von's Book Shop. The first two pictures were taken about 10 am solar time on June 22, 2009. The plant is in the bright sun and the yellow flowers are open. The third picture is the same plant at about 1 pm solar time the same day. The plant is in the shade of the bookstore and the flowers are closed and the seedheads are out.
